Just what CL should be

We booked at the last minute as we just wanted to recharge our batteries with some peace and quiet not too far away. Norwell is a pretty Village with a well stocked shop and a pub that’s popular with the locals. You need to book for Saturday night, although the landlord did manage to squeeze us in. The site is spacious and very peaceful surrounded by fields. We walked from the site both days using OS maps and hardly saw a soul. Didn’t manage to meet the owner as he came whilst we were out but we left the money in the tin as instructed. If you don’t know Newark it’s worth a visit, especially the Civil War Museum.

Very Pleasant CL

We only planned to stop one night, but stayed three. If you want peace and tranquility on the edge of a very pleasant village this CL will be for you.The CL owners are friendly and helpful and live near by. It is set in a long field with well spaced pitches and hook up points. There are basic water and waste facilities and the CL has an open sunny aspect and looks over surrounding countryside. We visited in dry weather in March and had no problems driving on to or off the field in our 7.5M motorhome. There are two hard (but grassed) pitches at the entrance that motorhomes can use if ground conditions are soft due to weather. While walking around the village, we were struck by how friendly all the locals are, everyone we passed giving us a welcoming hello. The pub is an easy walk from the site and has a good range of food at reasonable prices. The beer was very well kept too. We read an earlier review complaining that the pub did not allow dogs, however as dog lovers, and former dog owners, it shouldn't be considered a problem to respect the wishes of others. The village shop is worth a visit, it stocks a wide range of goods including wine and spirits, cakes made by the CL owners wife, and bread from a local bakery. A post office also operates here twice a week. The A1 is a short drive away, close enough for easy access, but far enough away not to be heard. We will definitely return if in this area again.

Excellent CL

Lovely, quiet peaceful site, with everything you need when self contained. Easy access, with the owner living just up the road; who was easy to contact via phone. Good value for money, and near to a lovely village. Originally came to this area to attend a nearby awards ceremony, however, we were really surprised as to what there is to see and do. Newark's newest 'attraction' is the National Civil War Museum, and we spent a whole day in there. Lots of other civil war places to visit. Some great cycling lanes, and one of the days we cycled over to Sherwood Pines, and Southwell, with its very own Minster. Not forgetting a visit to one of the numerous real ale establishments. The local shop (Brendas) stocks everything you will need, and it's like stepping back in time. Make sure you buy some cakes which are baked by the owner of the CL. We will definately return as we haven't seen everything there is to see.

Countryside Bliss

This is our first visit to this site and we are on day 7 of an 11 night stay . We searched the handbook for a CL where we could relax and this one certainly is allowing us to do just that . Yes there is sound of farm vehicle activity but that is what you’d expect if you’re in the heart of countryside and there’s still harvesting happening . But there’s all the other “ sounds” .... lots of birdsong , the distinctive sound of hawks flying overhead and owls calling at night . As far as “ facilities” go then this Village is spot on for us with a brilliant village shop that has “ produce” and “ products” supplied from other members of the Village and an old pub where lovely meals are available and that is also within walking distance .. just a 15 minute stroll . Newark is the nearest town with lots happening at the moment ..... you can even have a cruise on the Trent . So we will definitely be returning ... so glad we’ve found it and not too far from home so we can come for shorter stays too .

Great weekend

This is a lovely site very peaceful.  It is within walking distance to the village store and pub who are very friendly and welcoming. It was close to Sherwood Pines. Hope to revisit again soon.

Nice and peaceful

This site is on a fairly flat field. Nice and quiet lots of nice walks from the site to neighbouring villages. We didn't eat or drink in the pub as they are not dog friendly, we did eat at the Crown Inn at Bathley which was very nice. Overall good site would visit again.

Great for a stop over on a long trip

We stayed for one night on our long journey up to the Highlands of Scotland. The site is easy to find and just off the main road. We were made welcome by the owner as she was there when we arrived. As it is a rural site and we visited in early August the tractors and farm machinery were pretty busy but although they were noisy we still had a very peaceful night and woke to see the barn owl hunting in the opposite field. We will certainly use this site again.

Great little site

We stayed here in July 2015 and would definitely return. We had a lovely meal, good beer and an excellent welcome at The Plough in the village, its an easy walk but make sure you book because they get very busy. We caught the bus into Newark. You need to ring up the bus Co (Travel Wright) to ensure that the bus comes to the village. There is a stop near the CL as well as one near the pub. Taffy at the small village shop is a mine of info.

The village field

We stayed at this CL for the weekend and had a lovely stay. It was really peaceful and the only noise was a few cows in the adjacent field with the occasional moo here and there. The only thing to bare in mind here is the signage on arrival,could be much better. There is a caravan club sign on the left hand side of the entrance, part obstructed by the hedge, then you draw upto a pair of green metal gates, its not till you go through the gates and to your right, read the notices pinned on the shed wall next to the water tap that you know your in the right place. Just a small sign on the gates is all that is needed. To sum up, very nice and plesent stay with very nice food at the local pub down the road, walking distance away. We will visit again.

Rural tranquility

Had an overnighter here on way to Northumberland. Easy to find from A1 - about 10 minutes. Very peaceful site. Going to book in again for our return journey! Only downside was the long grass! Had a super meal, great value pub grub in the Plough in the village. (Do book though as it gets very busy Fri/Sat) That said the lovely landlord managed to fit us in. All in all highly recommended CL.
